Title: Going the Distance: Moving AC Power from Large Inverter-Based Generation Pockets to Load Centers

Abstract: Getting the power from large areas of high-quality wind and solar resources across AC transmission to load centers is one of the most pressing and practical challenges facing major interconnections today. This webinar covers the stability challenges associated with long-distance, high-voltage transmission by examining the performance of emerging grid-forming inverter technology relative to grid-following inverter technology and synchronous machine technology and the impact of non-wires transmission system reinforcements.


Speaker 1: Nick Miller recently retired from GE after 3/8 century of experience and research on bulk power systems. He has lectured on Wind and Solar Power integration to governments and institutions in more than three dozen countries. He currently provides consulting expertise to a variety of private and public institutions on topics of grid integration of renewable resources. He holds twenty US patents for wind, solar, and grid technologies, is a Fellow of IEEE, a NY PE, active in CIGRE and IEC, has authored over 150 technical papers and articles, and is the recipient of several power industry awards.
Speaker 2: Matthew Richwine is a founding partner of Telos Energy and is passionate about power systems engineering, power electronic controls, and system stability. For the past ten years, he has been designing, testing, and analyzing thermal and renewable power generation equipment and studying the stability of power systems ranging from tens of megawatts to tens of gigawatts.
